This is a copy negative (a photograph of another photograph). Title based on note from donor Ernest Marquez on envelope in which negative was received: "Construction of tunnel in Santa Monica."

The McClure Tunnel was previously known as the Olympic Tunnel and renamed to honor Santa Monica Outlook editor Robert E. McClure in 1969.
